Víctor Julio González (1961), is a Venezuelan artist with a long career, trained in two of the most recognized art schools in his country, between 1982 and 1987, we refer to the Escuela de Artes Plásticas Arturo Michelena, in Valencia, and the Escuela de Artes Visuales Cristóbal Rojas, in Caracas. Although painting is his main occupation, he also does photography and videos for artistic purposes, media with which, on occasions, he has complemented his exhibition proposals; he is even currently rehearsing the fusion between photography and painting. Soon we will see the results.
Víctor Julio became interested in the world of art at a very early age, thanks to the fact that, since then, he has been characterized by being very observant, particularly of nature, the jungle, and its fauna. He has been a traveler since he was a child, when he began to travel a lot with his parents from one city to another, trips in which he became absorbed in looking at the landscape that appeared to him on the sides of the road during his long journey, a practice that he still maintains, being in permanent movement, coming and going, traveling and carefully observing the landscape, an experience that has been very useful for him to conceptualize and develop his landscape work, specifically, although he has worked on other themes, such as grotesque human faces, for example, in an expressionist style, products of the ghosts of his dreams, a series with which in 1998 he won the Grand Prize XXIII Salón Nacional de Arte Aragua, Maracay, Venezuela.
